Menswear stockings are a great way to add a tailored touch to your holiday decor. To get the look, try a no-sew approach using iron-on adhesive tape, scissors and old sweaters or dress shirts. Those less likely to tackle this as a project can drop old shirts and sweaters off at their local dry cleaner or seamstress and have it done for a low cost.
Just as any dapper man dresses in layers, so does the dapper living room! Designer Scot Meecham Wood enhanced menswear patterns like pinstripes (pillows) and plaid (curtains) with rich materials like chrome, leather, and burl wood.
The family room area was transformed into a bold and bright gathering place. The red, white and blue palette is appropriate for the colonial architecture of the house, while the playful touches and interesting shapes are graphic, modern and playful.
The cool silvers and blues of the contemporary bedroom give it the look of a winter wonderland. Delicate patterns found on the headboard, wallpaper and bedding add depth to the space, while upcycled menswear pillows make a unique style statement.
Old knit sweaters and men's flannel shirts that have been retired from your wardrobe can be given new life again as throw pillows. This trio of repurposed apparel includes a cable-knit sweater as well as a pinstriped button-up and a woodsy plaid flannel.
This family room designed by Brian Patrick Flynn features windows dressed with plaid draperies, a ceiling painted 60-percent lighter than the navy-blue walls, a sofa outfitted in machine-washable slipcovers and a houndstooth-pattern storage ottoman that doubles as a coffee table.
While lying in bed, the entire winter-inspired bedroom envelops its overnight guests with subtle textures and a tight palette of coordinating colors. An old dresser picked up at a flea market for $100 was given a wintry update with a glossy sprayed finish. When choosing the proper blue for the space, a washed-out blue-gray was ideal since it added a wintry look without overpowering the room.
A mirrored nightstand, dresser and lamp reflect the cool blue hues of this transitional bedroom. A curvy upholstered headboard with a subtle check pattern provides beautiful contrast to the bright white bedding and creative pillows, which are made to look like the front of men's shirts.
Trendy menswear fabrics, mirrored furniture and nature-inspired details come together effortlessly in this bedroom. A playful mix of finishes, patterns and textures starts with the bedding ensemble, then makes its way throughout the entire room.
This living room is casual and cozy, anchored by a blue plaid area rug and sturdy, overstuffed furniture. Shades of brown and cream create a neutral backdrop for the room's assorted fabric prints and textures.
A buffet table is the way to go for open house parties. For this look, combine menswear fabrics in tartan and plaid with feminine touches like roses and sparkling accents. Label each dish with a menswear-inspired printable buffet label.
